We were there with a group. All 4 rooms were full with are group. Rooms are very clean. Amal and his wife are very friendly. They took us to the lake for a boattrip with very small boats. At the other side of the lake we did a walk and saw an elefant family. You can hire bikes to visit... More

We stayed in Palm Garden 2 nights in November 2012 and we were delighted. The rooms are super clean and the balcony is perfect for reading, relaxing and having a drink. The bathroom is especially well done and clean compared to what we've seen in other guesthouses. Dinners freshly prepared were delicious. The family was very welcoming and the first... More

The owner picked us up from and dropped us at the train station. Candlelit dinner in the garden and the food was good. We were explained the incident in regards to other negative reviewer's comments when another person was looking after the guesthouse. The family was very nice and hospitable.

I stayed two nights here, and it comes highly recommended. The room was very nice, very clean (despite some negative reviews on here on that account – not my experience of this place at all!) and very good value – double room with very nice bathroom, nets and fan for 1200 rupees or so. It's a bit further from the... More
